overgrazing Bv ELIZABETH WPIRP By ELIZABETH WEISE AP Cyberspace Writer SAN FRANCISCO AP The Internet gridlock that seems to come out of nowhere and disappears almost as quickly could be the result of our failure to learn what they tried to teach us back in kindergarten How to share Researchers have come up with an intriguing explanation for online congestion and have proposed whats likely to be an unpopular solution In an article in Fridays edition of the journal Science physicist Bernardo Huberman and his student Rajan Lukose see Internet congestion as an example of the classic sociological problem of the tragedy of the Given a finite communal resource individuals will seek to maximize their own gain If there is no outside force keeping them in line they will eventually destroy the resource for all It applies to sheep grazing and it works for Internet surfing as well Huberman said Because users cant see how their use of the finite pipelines that carry data online affects others they have no incentive to use less so that theres enough to go around To study the problem Huberman developed a statistical model of Internet usage at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center in California Rather than following a simple Bell curve with gradual increases and decreases Internet use they found is fairly steady most of the time but is randomly hit with sudden steep increases in traffic followed by a less steep The statistical model they created explains how this happens When enough people come online things begin to slow down At a certain point suddenly enough people are shipping around data that the pipelines start to fill up and everything comes to a near halt What Huberman finds even more fascinating is that the millions of individuals who are surfing the Net suddenly decide almost collectively when enough is enough and they all log off in the hope that things will be less congested when they come back While normal congestion online tends to follow the ebb and flow of the day dinner time on the East Coast means lots of people online and slow surfing these Net storms come at random times They generally happen during a peak usage period Do You Have Mild to
